Among women, space for Cocciaretto and Paolini. For Zeppieri the obstacle Ruud, for Jannik the German Altmaier. Vavassori finds the Argentine Genaro Olivieri
Three Italians engaged today, Thursday 1 June, in the second round of Roland Garros. Jannik Sinner took to the field immediately in the morning: the blue eliminated Alexandre Muller in the first round (6-1, 6-4, 6-1) and now faces the German Daniel Altmaier (6-3, 6-4, 6-4 against the Swiss Marc-Andrea Huesler): It will be very difficult: against Daniel I won in the fifth at the Us Open, it seems to me. It will be a tough game: he prefers clay to concrete so it will be even tougher, said Sinner.
Also on the pitch this morning Julius Zeppieriwho will challenge – in a really tough race – the Norwegian Casper Ruud, who at the Internazionali d’Italia on May 20 had surrendered only in the semifinal, in an all-Scandinavian derby, against the Danish Holger Rune (7-6, 4-6, 2-6).
Finally, not before 3 pm, I will also play Andrea Vavassori: take the field, on the French red clay, against the Argentine Genaro Alberto Olivieri. The blue in the first round knocked out Miomir Kecmanovic in just over five hours, canceling his opponent five overall match points (5-7, 2-6, 7-6, 7-6, 7-6): it was very tough I honestly don’t know how I managed to survive, rather than win the game. At the end of the third set I started to feel cramps, but this year I had already managed to win matches on the edge. Since the beginning of the season I have been working with a nutritionist who has been helping me a lot. I eat well, I integrate well and when I feel that the tank is almost empty I know that I can go further. I managed to stay clear-headed, and my decision to always go and get the point paid off. In the end he was a bit more tense than me and I won bravely, so I’m very happy, was his comment.
As for the women’s draw, today there will be two Italians on the field: Elizabeth Cocciaretto (against Swiss Simona Waltert) e Jasmine Paolini (against Serbian Olga Danilovic). Also on the field is the number one in the world: the Polish Iga Swiatek faces the American Claire Liu.
